Today I will follow Christ’s example of servanthood and enter the lives of those I am called to serve, seeing life (with all its frailties, contradictions, faults, weaknesses, and injustices) from their perspective, not mine. Christ was not an aloof advisor but an “I am in this with you, brother” friend and savior. (Inspired by a sermon by Fr. Todd.)

John 1:14
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (KJV)

(It is important to appreciate the significance of the words; “Word” referred to the Logos, the creator God, “flesh” had the connotation of base humanity, and “dwelt” may be translated as “tabernacled”, meaning in a holy place.)

Today I will approach God’s altar with the person I am called to serve.
